Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
Mingg1st. Anyone can write a review if they want... It's not just Twig(or red/orange/purple names) who is allowed to. The news section is open to every member.
2nd. You can get a recap anywhere with no bias. I personally like what he does. He says what a lot of us are thinking and a lot of people agree with what he is saying/doing.
3rd. Be the change you want to see. Cliche, but whatever. If you want more of those articles, write them.
SammyDubz1. I do understand this, but Twig seems to be the only one who writes these reviews.
2. I also get this, but NS is where I come for everything skiing. I don't really plan on going to ESPN or the X Games website for results. I realize that he voices the thoughts of a lot, but imo, the articles come off as unneeded negativity. Everyone always complains about how negative ski culture is, and articles like those just further said negativity.
3. I also have thought of this.
nutz.1. Then you should write one if you want people to read something different?
Chubz.I kind of agree with OP..I'd much rather see a recap of the competition without the bashing or comments of how boring and stale the current comp scene is.
KellyKI also somewhat agree with OP. Twig has every right to voice his opinion and distaste for comp skiing, but let's not call it news. It's editorial opinion, not fact and I'd rather see kids form their own opinions than hate something simply because Newschoolers told them that's what's cool to do.
Believe it or not, people actually use NS as a source of news and it's frustrating when that "news" is so blatantly one-sided negativity. Let's not let Newschoolers turn into YoBeat.
MinggI don't know. I like it. He says what a lot of people are thinking and to hold that back is lame in my opinion. I can see if it was presented as the official NS recap how that would be iffy. I've said it before, but any other ski media outlet is gonna give you the highlights of what happened. I like that he takes an alternative approach and isn't super generic about it. It wasn't all negative though either. At least it wasn't as negative as the Dew Tour write up hahaha
KellyKAh I guess I was referencing the Dew Tour article. The new pipe article is presented much better. I dig the disclaimer at the beginning. That pretty much solves my editorial vs. news gripe. Carry on.
eheaththe write it. twig is sitting on his couch in the UK watching a live stream and writing, you can literally do the exact same thing.
